For the past 23 years "The mpsons: Treehouse of Terror," has been as much of a tradition as Halloween itself. And with October lurking right around the corner it's time to find out what horrors will be awaiting everyone's favorite cartoon family from Springfield.
With an air set for Sunday, October 7, TVLine got the first word on what to expect. Read on for all the details.
First up, The mpsons' Marty McFly act. “Bart goes back and prevents Marge and Homer from ever getting married, and we see what happens next,” says the showrunner. (For what it’s worth, Jon Lovitz – who voices Marge’s high school paramour Artie Ziff, among other characters – is involved.)
Another segment is “a found-footage parody” – in the vein of Paranormal Activity – “where something really strange is going on in the mpson house,” he adds.
Also on tap: “We have a segment where a mini black hole terrorizes Springfield and starts sucking everything in, and it’s to tie into the discovery this summer of the Higgs boson,” he says, referring to the so-called “God particle.” (Attendees at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con were treated to a sneak peek of this part of the ep.) Finally, Jean adds, “We also deal a little with the Mayan prophecy of the world ending this year.”
Sounds like another stellar Halloween episode! Can't wait!!
